I love the quality of Stride Rite shoes -- they certainly can take a beating! A big plus for those of us with active toddlers, preschoolers, children. However, the prices at the regular Stride Rite stores are too expensive for my pocketbook. That's why I am so glad I found this Stride Rite outlet! Most of the toddler/preschool shoes are priced between $20-$30. (The same type shoes in the non-outlet Stride Rite stores are prices from $40-$50.) And usually the outlet store is running a "buy one, get another 1/2 price" sale. The styles (colors/designs) may be last years, but they are still fun colors and designs. I can usually buy my son 2 pairs of shoes for less than the price of one at the regular store. Staff is always friendly and helpful. They are patient with those wiggly children when trying to measure their feet. The store is always clean and aisles are easy to maneuver.
